Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried savory
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 beef tenderloin steaks (1 to 1-1/2 inches thick and 6 ounces each)

Directions

  1. Place six bacon strips at a time, on a microwave-safe plate lined with paper towels. Cover with another paper towel; microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until partially cooked.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sage, rosemary, savory, pepper and salt; rub over steaks. Wrap two strips of bacon around sides of steaks and secure with toothpicks.
  3. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Discard toothpicks. Yield: 6 servings.
